Months ago, I received a package of skin care items from Argie of The Beauty Bin.  One I was particularly excited to try was Purederm Nutritive Firming Hyrdro Gel Mask because I haven’t tried any face mask that comes with an actual mask.

I was supposed to use it as soon as I got it. Good thing I read the packaging. Apparently, it’s not advisable to use this on blemishes, pimples, irritated or sunburned skin.

I tried to wait until I no longer have breakouts but that didn’t happen. My theory is: this can exacerbate skin inflammation. Hence, the warning.  But how much more inflamed can my pimple get?!

I failed to take photos of the silicone-like gel mask before putting them on my face.  The sheet mask was so slimy I almost dropped it.

The Experience:

  • The mask was too big for my face so I had to overlap the top and bottom pieces of the mask.  Even then, there was still a little excess sheet on my chin and jaw area.  But it’s not much of a big deal for me.
  • This thing falls off.  So if you have errands to do, don’t.  I was going to do some leisure reading on the computer but when I felt the mask slowly falling downwards, I laid down in bed instead and read a book.
  • It’s not tingly or itchy or anything like the manual mud packs I used. It’s literally cool and refreshing.


  • Since it was advised not to use this on pimples, I checked my pimple right after I washed my face. It was still doing well, haha. Thankfully, the pimple didn’t get any more inflamed (nor did it multiply) days after.
  • True to its claim, it did give a “youthful glow.”  The type of glow that someone would tell you “blooming ka.” E did say I looked good, but I didn’t tell him what I did. :D
  • As for the firming part, my skin looked taut and supple afterwards, typical of hydrated skin. But I can’t really say there was significant firming that occurred.

Tips and Recommendations:

  • Take out the product on a clean table. The mask is so slimy you might drop it.
  • Use on pimples at your own risk.
  • I recommend this to men and women who don’t wear makeup. If you’re going out on a date and you want to look refreshed and glowing, try this. Makeup lovers can usually can go around dull skin with foundation and highlighters.

Will I buy this? Yes, I’ll buy this for E if we have an event to go to (not that he needs it.)

  3. So, that's what it's called–a sheet mask. I didn't know that. :)

  4. Yeah, I'm still playing around with the lay-out. The old one is not very flexible but I like it more too.

    Rae! New lay-out! :) I kinda like the old one but maybe this'll grow on me, too. :)

    I'm glad this mask didn't add more zits. And ang sosyal naman ni E, haha, he's so lucky to have you.

  6. Hi Hazel, at first I thought that was what's going to happen, that my pimples will multiply…

  7. Good thing your pimples didn't multiply after using this! :) I see this in Watsons and i'm itching to try it even though i'm not a big facial mask user too :P

    Btw, I hope you can join my blog's birthday giveaway here:
